Famous painter Maqbool Fida Hussain is called the 'Picasso' of Hindustan. And today is the birthday of Maqbool Fida Hussain. Born on this day, September 17, 1915, Hussain was of a very pleasant nature. At times, he was caught up in controversies because of his paintings, but he has also had a good association with many films.
M F Hussain, through his hard work, one day achieved the feat where every painter wants to reach. Yes, of course, no matter how big a painter, he became, his passion for cinema is still remembered. Not only that, he has been a big fan of many Bollywood actresses. Let us tell you that M F Hussain was obsessed with this actress in Bollywood and she is none other than Madhuri Dixit. Hussain, whose film 'Hum Aapke Hain Kaun (1994)' had watched not once, but twice, but 67 times in full and also did a full series of paintings on him. Hussain's obsession with Madhuri can be understood from the way he made the 2000 'Gajagamini' movie about Madhuri. Hussain was about 85 years old at the time. According to media reports, 'Gajagamini' had a budget of about 2.5 crore while the movie earned only Rs 26 lakh at the box office.
Hussain's madness for love continued after 7 years when Madhuri Dixit managed to make her Bollywood debut again with 'Aja Nachle'. M F Hussain was in Dubai in those days and had booked Dubai's Lamsi Cinema for the afternoon show for himself. Not only that, after some time it was found that he loved Tabu and 'Meenakshi: A Tale of Three Cities (2004)' for her. Success has not been achieved here either, but the kind of cinema, he made and painted is still remembered by the people. Hussain went crazy seeing another actress in 2006. This was Amrita Rao of the movie 'Vivah'. Hussain decided that he would make his painting. Not only that, on Amrita's birthday, Hussain also presented her with three painting gifts worth about Rs 1 crore.
